From: Andrew Rogers 
Subject: ./m/music_machine/talk_talk.crd

This alienated rant was a #15 hit for the Music Machine in early 1967.  My
bar band covered it as late as 1975, with me snarling the lead vocal,
whacking on a tambourine, and playing both organ and the detuned low-E
guitar riff at various points in the song.  --AWR


                              "Talk Talk"
                            (Sean Bonniwell)

[Note: the rhythm guitar is tuned down a minor third; the key riff of the
 verses is played F#-E but sounds Eb-Db.]


Intro:

	Eb           Ab            Db
	 /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /

	[fuzz bass: Gb Db]

	   Eb         Db Eb     Db
	I got me a complication
	     Eb       Db  Eb    Db
	And it's an only child
	    Eb          Db Eb     Db
	Concernin' my reputation
	    Eb            Db    Eb    Db
	As something more than wild
	  Gb             Cb  Gb     Cb
	I know it serves me right
	    Ab            Db Ab     Db
	But I can't sleep at night

Verse 2:

	I won't cry out for justice
	Admit that I was wrong
	I'll stay in hibernation
	'Til the talk subsides to gone
	My social life's a dud
	My name is really mud
	I'm up to here in lies
	Guess I'm down to size
	    Db
	To size

	The things that bother me
	 E           D
	Seems to be
	      E            D  E
	What everybody has
	        Db
	Against me

[repeat intro]

	Oh, oh, all right


Verse 3:

	Here's the situation
	And how it really stands
	I'm out of circulation
	I've all but washed my hands
	My social life's a dud
	My name is really mud
	I'm up to here in lies
	Guess I'm down to size
	    Db
	To size
